For the past several years, the South Carolina Association of Nonprofit Organizations (SCANPO) has been hosting South Carolina’s Nonprofit Summit to provide continuing education and leadership training to nonprofit leaders, staff and board members. The 2017 Nonprofit Summit is being held March 6-8 in Columbia, South Carolina. Tom Keith, president of the Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina, is serving as the summit’s co-chair.
Keith was recently interviewed by South Carolina Public Radio about the summit. Listen to his interview here.
The foundation recently announced a partnership with SCANPO to design a comprehensive, statewide learning and development program focused on excellence in nonprofit practice. The new grant-funded program will provide opportunities that build on the foundation’s long-standing Carolina Academy program that trained more than 1,500 nonprofits leaders and practitioners over the last nine years.
Founded in 1997, SCANPO is the only statewide membership organization and network that brings together nonprofit leaders to strengthen the state’s entire nonprofit sector. The three-day summit includes in-depth workshops, plenary sessions, site visits to local nonprofits and more than 60 breakout sessions focused on operations, communications, advocacy, fundraising, leadership, community impact and more. More than 100 nonprofit professionals will be presenting during the conference and hundreds of nonprofit leaders and business partners are expected to attend.
The Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina is a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System.
